PONTING CLEANS UP
RICKY Ponting is known as “Punter” because he happens to be a very good one.
The ex-Australian cricket captain noticed Vow and Declare was paying $151 with corporate bookmakers in the early betting markets at the beginning of the year and snapped it up. He was celebrating like he’d won an Ashes series after the race.
Two Melbourne-based turf journos also had a huge win on the horse, grabbing odds of $201 when betting opened on the race.
